The Macur review


"THE REPORT of the Macur Review — an examination of the work of the 1996-99 North Wales Child Abuse Tribunal — is a whitewash."

"Lady Justice Macur’s report was finally published on March 17 this year — nearly three and a half years after it was commissioned."

"She concludes:"

" `I have found no reason to undermine the conclusions of the Tribunal in respect of the nature and scale of the abuse.` "

"She brushes aside evidence submitted by Rebecca — one of the Tribunal’s major critics."

"She also rules out the existence of a national paedophile ring:
`Neither is there evidence of the involvement of nationally prominent individuals in the abuse of children in care in North Wales, between 1974 and 1996`."

"`Consequently, I do not recommend the establishment of a further public or private inquiry`."

"But Lady Justice Macur is also highly critical of the Tribunal.
Her team has done enough digging to find shocking shortcomings in its work."

"She could have condemned it as unfit for purpose."

  1. Please will you help? [Justice for North Wales child survivors]

    Hello there,

    I just signed the petition "We call on the Government, Labour Party and Lib Dems to launch investigations into allegations that MPs and peers raped and assaulted children, including from North Wales, during the 1980s and 1990s" and wanted to see if you could help by adding your name.

    The petition calls for 25 politicians to be interviewed by their parties, in case they can help shed light on alleged crimes against children. We are sure the politicians will want to help if they can:

    Margaret Hodge MP; Keith Vaz MP; Lord Paul Boateng; Lady Janet Boateng
    Lord David Steel
    Sir Peter Bottomley MP; Sir Edward Leigh MP; Dr Julian Lewis MP; Peter Lilley MP; Lord Alistair Cooke
    Michael Portillo; Edwina Currie; Dame Shirley Porter; Michael Brown; Derek Laud; David Nicholson; Harry Greenway; Harvey Proctor
    Cllr Robert Davis; (David) Russell Walters; Tony Kerpel MBE; Peter Martindale; Robert Moreland; Alex Segal; Miles Young

    Our goal is to reach 500 signatures and we need more support. You can read more and sign the petition here:

    Thank you for your time.
